What is Dermaplaning?
Dermplaning is a safe and simple process that removes fine vellus hairs (peach fuzz) and gently exfoliates the skin throughout a given treatment area. During treatment, a surgical steel blade is used to precisely remove fine hairs and dead skin cells. A hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen are then applied to protect and nourish the skin.
Who is a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is right for people who want to get rid of mild symptoms that affect the look or feel of their complexion. This often includes people looking to treat:
- dry, rough skin
- dull skin
- mild acne scars
- superficial hyperpigmentation
- fine lines or wrinkles
- annoying peach fuzz or stray hairs
This versatile treatment is able to treat all skin types and colors. It is not as long-lasting or versatile compared to more intense treatments like laser hair removal, but it does provide professional exfoliation that helps our moisturizers and serums absorb deep into the skin for better results.
Dermaplaning is not recommended for people with active infections, such as active acne or cold sores. Prior to treatment, your provider will fully examine your treatment area and ask you if you have ever had issues with sensitive skin or other irritation following exfoliation.
Results and Recovery
There is no downtime needed after a dermaplaning treatment, so patients can return to their everyday activities right away. Sunscreen should always be worn to protect the skin from damage and avoid developing hyperpigmentation.
After dermaplaning, patients enjoy smoother, softer, glowing skin, and this treatment can be repeated frequently, as often as once every two weeks for optimal results.

It is normal to feel a little bit of stubble as your hair begins to grow back after dermaplaning. However, this doesnt mean that your hair is growing back thicker. It has to do with the way that each hair was cut straight across during treatment.
